VANILLA NUT GRANOLA

I love this healthy breakfast treat (made with only 7 ingredients) because it’s healthy and packed with my favorite flavors of vanilla, maple syrup, coconut, and honey. Crunchy pieces of mixed nuts and quinoa make this granola extra crunchy! My favorite way to enjoy this granola is in a yogurt parfait with vanilla Greek yogurt, sliced banana, blueberries, and apricot butter.

Try my Refined Sugar-free Banana Nut Muffins- they are healthy, wholesome and extra fluffy!

You can indulge in this with milk and enjoy it as cereal or simply enjoy it as a snack to munch on just how it is. This granola naturally sweet it will curb any sweet tooth!

I love making my granola from scratch because I know exactly what’s going in it. Have you read the ingredients on a bag of granola from the store? It’s scary and I can’t even pronounce half of the ingredients listed on there. Granola is a treat to me because I enjoy it so much and using whole natural ingredients makes this recipe even better. I focused on making this granola more on the crunchier side then clumpy side and it has just the right amount of crunch to it.

Granola is one of those treats you can’t ever get tired of because you can enjoy it in so many different way. You can also switch up the flavors like I did with this Peanut Butter Chocolate Granola and this Pumpkin Spice Granola. I even made Frozen Yogurt Granola Cups with this Vanilla Nut Granola and it’s perfect when I’m craving ice cream or something sweet.
